Research Interests

My research uses quantitative models and modern econometric tools to analyze the causes and consequences of globalization. My core research focuses on how restrictions in labor mobility, both internationally and domestically, affect the international movement of factors and goods, and the associated impacts on global welfare. My job market paper examines the economic consequences of a skill-based US immigration reform from a global general equilibrium perspective. I also work on a variety of topics related to immigration and trade.
